Federal Eyes on South Philly High?

It’s said that the Obama administration is rolling out a stepped-up enforcement of civil rights laws at schools throughout the U.S. And of the 38 cases the U.S. Education Department is supposed to open, one involves a “’major urban school district’ and its treatment of students who speak English as a second language.” (The story is Here)
Hopefully, it’ll be the School District of Philadelphia. If you missed the news story, Asian students at South Philadelphia High School were being beaten and harassed by African American students while the administration did *nothing.* Official announcements are coming Wednesday so stay tuned.
